Lions-Packers inactives: All seven questionable Lions are ACTIVE

It’ll be the battle of the backups on Sunday.

NFL: Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

There aren’t many surprises among the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers inactives. When DeAndre Levy, Antwione Williams, Adairius Barnes, Clay Matthews and Morgan Burnett were all downgraded to out, it pretty much told us who to expect as a healthy scratch.

Rookie Joe Dahl remains inactive for the third straight week despite Laken Tomlinson’s clear struggles at left guard. Cole Wick returns from injury this week, sending Orson Charles back down to the inactive list.

The Lions had seven additional players listed as questionable on Friday, but all of them are active for the game.

On the Packers side, defensive tackle Letroy Guion is inactive after missing practice all week and being labeled as questionable on Friday. Additionally, defensive end Datone Jones is also out with a knee injury.

Here’s a look at the full inactives for Sunday’s matchup:
